If you are looking for a charmingly authentic Tuscan experience, you will find it at Villa Torre Degli Elci. Set in the green countryside, amidst the olive and cypress trees, sits this stunningly delightful villa. And the best part is, it's only a few miles from Cortona. Given its name from the old sighting tower which has testimonials dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries, it transformed first into a monastery, and then finally into a beautiful country house. The villa is set on the hillside slopes, away from the main roads and noise, but close enough to take a quick drive into the liveliness of the city.
The massive property is comprised of three distinct sections, all with unique characteristics. There is a main three-story house holding four of the bedrooms, a guest house holding one queen bedroom with a mini bar, TV, bathroom and washer/dryer, and a separate outbuilding with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen and dining area. The three separate sections make this property essential for those traveling with other families, friends or guests, assuring maximum space and harmony.
Gather outside and eat a beautifully crafted meal together under the gazebo. The outbuilding has an old stone oven for delicious pizza-making or to experience an Italian cooking class without having to leave the comforts of the home. Take a dip in the swimming pool during the summer months or enjoy a glass of red wine around the fireplace. No matter the season, you are sure to have an incredible vacation while residing in Villa Torre Degli Elci.
